Going Nowhere Fast

Have you been in a place in your life when you have so many ideas and plans and when you think about them they get you excited? I have and I do.

I have one problem though and maybe you have it too. My mind is thinking one age and one mode and my body is telling me something else. I still am working a part-time job, I enjoy doing all kinds of crafts, and I am active in my church as much as I can be. Right now I am receiving a great blessing from teaching the two-four years old during Church time. They are so precious. Right now I have five girls in my class. We are just getting to know each other. This last week I was down on the floor pretending I was laying in my tent. We did the story of Abraham and Sarah when the Lord told them they had to leave home. The girls loved it but I must say it was a lot easier getting up off the floor when I was in my thirties instead of almost being seventy.

I guess the old saying, "You are as old as you feel," is very true. The 'Golden Years' is not how I would describe getting older. There is coming a day in which I can look forward to when I am with my Jesus. When I finally get to heaven and see Him and God my Father and the Bible tells me there will be not more tears or pain. And then I can talk to my Lord and praise my Father all the time.

Well since I am standing typing this post my feet and legs are beginning to hurt so I best go for now and set down and see what kind of adventure I am in for this coming Sunday.

Until next time you think young.

The Lord Heals The Brokenhearted!

For many years I have had a broken heart. As I read Psalm 147:3 I realized that I no longer need to have this broken heart. As the verse reads, "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds."  God has healed my broken heart curing it of its pain and sorrows. I don't know why it has taken me so long to realize this. I am so glad I have. 

Father,
Thank You for showing me in Your Word that I no longer need to have a broken heart because You have healed me from it. I am so thankful and rejoicing. I love You, Your Word, Your Son, and Your Spirit. How can one not be joyful with You on their team. 

Show others that You can also heal their broken heart and remove the sorrow and pain from their lives. You are no different now then You were when these Words were written. You are not going to change ever. You are the same for all time and everlasting.

The End Of Me

the end of me/Jesus  by Kyle Idleman is a book about becoming a broken person and emptied out of  all of your sins and allowing the Holy Spirit to fill you with what God wants for their lives.

Maybe you do this at times and that is to put on a mask or fake a smile when actually you are crying inside. Maybe you say all the right words but your lives don't back up your words. This is easily done. Remember, however we can fool those around us but we can not fool God. He knows are heart. He even knows our thoughts even before we think them.

This book is based on Matthew 5 and the Sermon on the Mount. It is one way that the Lord taught his twelve chosen men. Others were around to hear but He was speaking and teaching to His disciples. If you are a believer you too are a learner of God's ways.

This is a great book on seeing how real life in the upside-down ways of Jesus begins. Title headings will show you what is meant by this statement. Broken to Be Whole, Mourn to Be Happy, Humbled to be Exalted, Authentic to Be Accepted. In the second half of the book it is talking about Empty to Be Filled, Helpless to Be Empowered, Disqualified to Be Chosen and Weak to Be Strong.

If you are looking for a good book to encourage you in your walk and relationship with God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit this is the book for you.

May you be blessed as you read.
